Annie Get Your Gun Reviews

    A great musical (besides the terrible, sexist ending fixed in modern productions) destroyed by Hutton's ridiculous over the top and annoying performance.

    With big shoes to fill, following in the steps of Ethel Merman and Judy Garland, could little Betty Hutton be up to the role? You bet! Ms. Hutton pulls out all the stops and gives this role her heart and soul! Believable as uneducated hillbilly Annie Oakley, she morphs into a Bronco busting sharp shooter who travels with the Buffalo Bill Show! The love story between her and Butler, who Annie eventually marries, is central to the story as well. While the portrayal of Native Americans is rife with stereotype (hey it's the early 50s!) her love for her adopted Native American father is evident. This is a great musical with songs and lyrics by Irving Berlin! Check it out!

    Annie Get Your Gun has always been and continues to be one of my personal favorite golden age of cinema musicals. Betty Hutton steals the show with an outstanding and unforgettable performance as Annie Oakley and the music is iconic. This movie holds up pretty well (despite some small political incorrectness by modern standards) and is well worth your time nearly 70 years later!

    The best musical movie ever made! With the best movie character ever portrayed: Betty Hutton as Annie Oakley! And 2 of the best movie songs ever sung: Anything You Can Do and There's No Business Like Show Business!

    I'm not a great fan of musical, but this movie was still bearable. As for a modern viewer the horribly racist portrayal of native americans was painfull to look at.

    Great music, but dated now so it comes across somewhat racist and sexist. Also it feels like it is filmed more as a stage production rather than as a film adapted from the stage.

    Likeable musical apart from the fact Betty Hutton shouts her way through what is essentially a romance, so much so it can get a little overbearing after a while. It's not one for animal lovers too, they shoot birds out of the sky frequently and with much merriment.

    This MGM-er is so good, including Betty Hutton. BUT - I can't help to always wonder how great it would've been with Judy. Oh well. Still a treat.
